There is no need to tell you that the long working hours in the office can take their toll on your body, especially if your work requires you to sit in front of a computer eight hours per day. And except for the usual things like improving your sitting posture, exercising on a daily basis and adding greenery to your office, there are some other important things that can help you improve your overall well-being. One of them is the use of certain types of ergonomic accessories.
Mini or micro desks are the ultimate solution for those of you who need to refer to documents while working on the computer at the same time. These types of desks can keep you in line all the time while helping you improve your posture and reducing neck strain. Usually made of a sturdy type of plastic, these types of ergonomic office accessories have different heights so you can use the one that suits you the most.
Whether working late or not, having an ergonomic type of task light can come in handy anytime and anywhere. Available in a range of designs, materials, sizes and shapes, these types of ergonomic office accessories are a functional and stylish addition to any workstation. According to manufacturers and specialists, it is best to choose one that can provide you with a powerful and adjustable light in order to suit your comfort levels.
Tip: When looking for task light, it is best to choose one that has a flicker-free LED lamp with no UV glare so it won’t cast multiple shadows.
Gel Wrist Rest Mousepad
It’s no secret that one of the most common diseases related to office work is the carpal tunnel syndrome. In order to avoid that, manufacturers have created one small, yet handy solution, the gel wrist rest mousepad that can work wonders. The gel-filled wrist rest conforms to the wrist for maximum comfort and support. The best part is that some of these mousepads can be placed in the fridge as the silicone-gel coldness may help soothe wrist inflammation (if any).
Ergonomic Floor Mats
This ergonomic type of accessory has the purpose of improving blood circulation and preventing the fatigue caused by sitting for a long period of time. Generally speaking, these types of mats are made from a dense, thick and durable polyurethane closed cell foam and are used as an addition to sit-stand desks, workstations, meet & greet areas and so on.
